I have had 4 of these kits already and I will say they all work, but are poorly made. Make sure you seal all of the connections when installing, this isnt factory quality equipment. I had a foglight connector rot and fail from water damage over 6 months of driving.

Beam pattern isnt what a projector is, but tey are a hug improvement over the halogen bulbs. If you get beyond the 6000k kelvin, you are losing effective light in exchange for that blue appearance. I have all 5000k bulbs and would consider 4300k for the fogs.

Also - last and only car I have that doesnt have projector fogs and HID headlamps factory installed.

I just added the 2006 Commander and retired the 99 Cherokee. I still have the 1994 YJ Sahara.

It's still stock with the 4.7. It's my daily driver. I'll be doing a few mods

So what fog do you feel is working best, the projector or the stock housing? I have been considering the projectors for a while and havent baught them yet. Who's lamps are you using for the headlights abd the fog lights?

The projectors I have are total junk.

Save your dough, the factory light housing is superior with halgen bulbs. With HID's its 10x better.

I did the install with a friend. Took us about 8hrs. to complete...neither of us had worked on an IFS truck before, so some of that time was spent trying to figure out where everything was/how to take everything apart.
just wondering if you got the RR lift with the shocks or not? if you did do you think there worth getting?

I bought the RR lift kit without the shocks because I had heard bad things about how stiff they were. I went with Bilsteins all around instead...love those shocks.

80 bucks for the set of RR shocks is hard to turn down though, but I agree alot of people have reported them to be stiff but nothing unbearable.

That is pretty much exactly what I want to do to ours. How is the fitment without a spacer on those JK wheels? Thank you for posting a picture of it. Ours is even a similar color so that is just about perfect.
